December 17th is my Birthday. Usually a time when people gift me presents for the achievement of gaining another level of old! However this year I have decided to give back! For the next 24 hours ReversE will be free to download for Windows, MacOSX and Linux! Birthdays are usually (supposedly) a day of happiness and joy! Well today I want to spread that joy with you all by delivering you what I hope will be a fantastic gift and something very special!
The Giveaway has now ended! Thank you so much to everyone who checked it out, for all the support I received in the last 24 hours and for being amazingly awesome!
Today I have made available a version of ReversE for Linux. It works upto the same level Windows/Mac versions of the game work and is also available to download at the same time as the Windows and Mac version for 69p!
The game should work on all modern versions of Linux according to Unity technologies! When you finish purchasing the game you will be able to download the Mac/Windows and Linux versions of the game!
If you have any problems with the Linux version of the game please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me on here through PM or send an email to AlloydGD@hotmail.co.uk
The soundtrack to ReversE is now available on BandCamp at this address http://alloydgd.bandcamp.com/ to be bought and downloaded for 69p or you can pay more if you really like it! All of the tracks are in .Wav 32bit lossless format.
I have put some donate buttons up on my main sites one on this WordPress blog, one on the ReversE page and one on my personal website page. If you like the work I am producing and want to help me along a bit with my development and acquisition of licenses such as Unity Pro for android developing, then all donations would be gratefully received! At the moment I only have PayPal as my method for acceptance for now.
ReversE development progress is coming on very well, I should be able to publish within the week to Desura, and I will be exploring a DRM free option which allows you to make a purchase through my personal website!
Made a huge stack of changes to the game since my last update! Some of these have been
– Adding a drop shadow to player feedback text
– Adding sounds and polishing levels 1-13
-Creating levels 28-35 to a playable and completable state
– Re-Jigging of the options menu within the game so you can now change character skins when they unlock
– Split Sound, Player Customization and Game Stats into their own function menus
– Added scripts to the players which recognize the new player skins
-Tweaked a few puzzles for polishing, a few errors with collision areas in
Current to do list
Need to add Sound effects manager to the levels past level 13 for the game
Must add UI sounds inside the levels in the game
Will attempt to re-integrate the menu sounds I had for the level select menu
Need to create 8 more tracks for the game – inspiration there just need more time in the day!
Need to create 33+ all bonus player skins to unlock, may also include user submissions so if you have any please send them this way!
A lot of polishing, play-testing and code efficiency checks need to be made in a 46 hour burn period in the game
Need to check compatibility with Windows XP as problems have been noted with XP OS
Need to tweak UI within the game menus, some texts are too big/small for the buttons, some of the GUI moves around on screen resizing too much
Need to fix annoying music tab out bug, may investigate pausing game entirely if tabbed out, although need to do research on this one
If there are any more fixes needed after this, they will come in the form of content patches post release. The game will be shipping in the best possible state of polish it can get as I will work my socks off from now until submission date which I am officially hoping to be December 14th to Desura.
Below I will post a video that I have uploaded showing the changes and additions to the player skins and should give you a rough idea of where the game is at!
If you enjoy my game please vote for me on IndieDB of the year,(should be a red button at the top of the page) and leave some feedback for me as well if you have any! Will post another update quite soon! Stay tuned!
